UT2 starts moving again

Following a pause of a few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Unit Telescope 2 (UT2), part of ESO’s Very Large Telescope, was moved for the first time again on Thursday 10 September. To ensure a smooth movement, ESO engineer Matteo Pozzobon (pictured) initially moved the telescope by hand.
